52Teas Loose Leaf Black Tea ‘Root Beer Flavored Black Tea’

July 8th, 2012 by Nicole Schwartz

Tea Information:
Tea: Root Beer Flavored Black Tea – Iced Tea Series
Type: Black Tea
Packaging: Loose Leaf
Company: 52Teas
Purchase: Here
Description: Here are FIVE unique iced tea blends we’ve created from high quality Nilgiri CTC teas. These are uber fine teas, so they are not as pretty as our whole leaf teas, but they steep up a bold, rich, flavorful iced tea. We’ve packaged them in approximately 1.2oz. pouches, which is just enough for one gallon of iced tea (more if you re-steep) so you can just rip them open, dump them out and steep. No measuring required!
Ingredients: Premium Indian CTC teas, natural flavors

Steep Information:
Amount: 1 packet
Water: 3Qt
Tool: Mr. Coffee Iced Tea Maker
Served: Cold

Tasting Notes:
Dry Leaf Smell: root beer, perhaps a hint of sarsaparilla
Steeped Tea Smell: root beer, black tea
Flavor: black tea
Body: Full
Aftertaste: astringent
Liquor: dark brown

The flavor was more of a smell.

Post-Steep Additives:
agave nectar, bring out the root beer but it is still not a strong flavor

In the end a plain iced tea with a little root beer flavor.

Rating: 2/4 leaves

Leaf system:
1=Bleh! not again if it were free
2=Acceptable, if it were free or there were limited other tea options
3=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
4=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing

I purchased this product. All my reviews are as unbiased as possible, whether I buy or receive free product. I accept no other compensation other than free product.
